Name Reservation Restricted

Hello Daevas,

Thank you for your continued support and love for Aion and the upcoming launch on 4/11 of the new Truly Free iteration with the highly anticipated 3.0 content.

As you know we opened up name reservations for the new server, Kahrun. That server is to go online on 4/11.

The response has been tremendous and we are again gratified by your dedication and affinity for the Aion service.

As of today we have reached the limit of the name reservations we can take on Kahrun before it opens. (Entirely due to the community's enthusiasm!) So from about 10PM Pacific Time until the official launch, players will no longer be able to reserve names on Kahrun.

Fortunately on launch day, Wednesday April 11th, players will be able to fully create their characters, with their desired name, as on any other new server.

We thank you again for your understanding for this slight change of plans. It is NCSOFT's desire to provide the most robust and enjoyable experience to all Aion players and with coming of Aion: Ascension we hope that you have seen, and will soon enjoy, the hard work and dedication our team has poured into this herculean effort.

Thank you again for all your support!

Aion ®: Ascension ™ Honors Kahrun for its Launch!

We are excited to announce the launch of a brand new Aion® server!

On April 4, 2012, 'Kahrun' — a new Central Time Zone server - will open up early for name reservations and character creation. Players will be able to log in and reserve their names on Kahrun and then enjoy playing those new characters when Aion: Ascension launches on April 11th.

Kahrun is the leader of the Reian people in Sarpan. It is through his will and magic that the Elyos and Asmodians were able to come together in a reluctant alliance against the Dragon Lord Tiamat. As governor of Sarpan and prime military leader for the push into Tiamaranta, Kahrun represents a new beginning on the face of an old war. But are his hopes and dreams strong enough to put an end to a war that has raged for thousands of years?

Find out on April 11th, 2012 when Aion: Ascension launches!

Conversion to Truly Free Gives Players NCoin!

Greetings Daevas!

We wish to give a heartfelt thank you to all of the Daevas who have supported Aion® in the past few years. With the release of Aion®: Ascension™, we've evolved away from the subscription model and adopted our popular and innovative Truly Free™ concept which gives players more choices for how they play.

On April 4, 2012, your account type will change from standard to Truly Free™ in preparation for the launch of Aion: Ascension on April 11th, 2012. All current, future or recurring billing will be eliminated on April 4! Also, as part of going Truly Free, formerly inactive accounts that are in good standing will be activated at this same time. We welcome everyone back to gear up and get ready for the launch of Aion: Ascension!

Any remaining game time on your account will be converted into NCoin™ at a rate of 40 NCoin per remaining day for which you had already paid. Please note that this conversion may take a couple of days to fully process on all accounts.

Additionally, that NCoin can be used immediately! The Black Cloud Marketplace ™ will open for business on April 4th as well! Our pre-order program allows you to purchase items immediately to be delivered to your character on April 11th when Aion: Ascension launches! Take advantage of ordering in advance to be ready to go on launch day!

The new Black Cloud Marketplace™ and C.U.B.E.™ bundling system will only accept NCoin. Purchasing store items is completely optional.


Introducing the C.U.B.E.

The Customizable User Bundling Experience (C.U.B.E.) is a revolutionary way to save money! If you like to save money, but dislike "bundles" because you are forced to purchase items you really don't want - this IS the answer. The C.U.B.E. allows you to create your very own bundle, and still get a better deal and bonus items! Watch the video to learn all about it!
